What about vitamin E and drug interactions?
People using drugs such as blood-thinners, cholesterol medications, blood pressure medications, etc, should always start with 1 capsule (400 I.U.) and work up to optimum dosage over time as needed. Vitamin E can temporarily increase blood pressure in individuals with high blood pressuremonitoring dosage is required. However, it has been reported that, over time, vitamin E supplementation can support healthy blood pressure levels. Always speak with your primary health care provider before adding this or any other dietary supplement to your daily health regimen.* Vitamin E is fat soluble, what about liver toxicity, what level is safe?
Unlike other fat soluble vitamins, vitamin E is NOT accumulated in the liver. This astonishing fact was recently proven in a paper entitled, Vitamin E Trafficking (see references below). The authors report, the liver does not accumulate toxic amounts of vitamin E. Excess vitamin E is not accumulated in the liver, but is excreted, mostly in bile, via a p-glycoprotein (ABCB4)-mediated process. Speak with your primary health care provider to determine a dosage that is appropriate for your health goals.*
